1 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - For the Falconets: This victory is personal
He pressed his head to my bosom. I looked down. I observed some tears rolling down his little cheek as we sat on the sofa watching Nigeria engage Germany in a game of skills and wits. Then he said (as if I did not notice), 'Daddy, Germany has scored'. And I replied, 'son, it is ok; there is still some time. It is not over yet'.

2 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - African leaders' blackmail of the International Criminal Court
If not for the double speak of African leaders on the ICC, the recent call they made regarding the docking of serving African heads of state would merit pensive introspection, at least from a practical point of view. On the double speak, African leaders have conveniently, in the words of Bishop Desmond Tutu, 'played both the race and colonial cards' to undermine the ICC. But these are hollow charges when confronted with the important statistics regarding African representation in the Court....

3 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Why there is no ideology under the umbrella
No one, no matter how frugal, uses the umbrella for too long, let alone a country! A nation that is politically anchored on an umbrella reminds me of once an airline that was symbolized by an elephant! It has since been interred. Even when one gets a roadside cobbler or like artisan that claims expertise in umbrella repair to fix or, as we say in Nigeria, to patch a broken umbrella, that intervention does not last.

4 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - America's Syrian dilemma: To bomb or not to bomb
Why is the United States now inevitably drawn into the Syrian crisis in a do-and-be-damned and do-not-and-be-damned situation? It started with Mr. Obama's uttering of the ominous phrase 'crossing the red line'; a reference to potential use of chemical weapon by Syria's Assad, which development Obama promised would attract some consequences. I advance further a number of reasons for America's dilemma on Syria.

5 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Saving Nigeria's agriculture from fair-weather 'investors'
Nigeria, like most African countries, is a site for foreign agricultural land grab. Pristine agricultural lands in Africa are increasingly targets of foreign acquisitions, especially since the 2008 global financial crises. Africa is a new destination for foreign biofuel farmers and adventurers. The continent is now at the crosscurrent of forces that seek turning poor peoples' food into rich peoples' fuel.

6 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Al-Mustapha: Waiting for 'The Accidental Military Politician'
During the Abacha era, there was massive crackdown on the opposition including through targeted assassinations of prominent opposition and prodemocracy leaders, including journalists. It was that period of terror that Alfred Rewane, Kudirat Abiola and others were assassinated. Alex Ibru, the affable publisher of The Guardian Newspaper, was a target of a failed assassination attempt at that eon. Most of these attacks happened in broad day lights conceivably by persons believed to be agents of the government of the day and allegedly under the security directive of Al-Mustapha.

7 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Governor Amaechi and Rivers State: Jonathan's 2015 dress rehearsal
Reading some of the reactions and outrage that have continued to trail recent and ongoing crises in Rivers State, one manages to find some positive spin. Nigerians, at least most of the commentators, recognize that the crises in Rivers State is not necessarily about Gov. Amaechi. It is, I surmise, like most others have done, about our political culture and its future. It is about the level of ignominy and impunity of the political class. It is about the nature and quality of leadership of the present political dispensation under President Jonathan.

8 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Senator Pius Akpor Ewherido (1963-2013): A friend's tribute
Our paths crossed. We were friends but our bond was brotherly. He was a senior and ever counselling brother. He was always ready to make the age argument. Hence, it was his entitlement at some point when we shared a room in Fajuyi Hall, OAU, Ife, to sleep below while I slept atop our double bunk bed.

9 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Ifeoma Stella Obi (1981-2008): A tribute
On August 15, 2008 members of the African Diaspora Communities in the Maritime Region of Canada woke up to the shocking news of the death of one of their own, Ms. Ifeoma Stella Obi. Ifeoma was a Nigerian by birth who, like most members of her African circle of friends in Canada, migrated to that country in search of quality education.

10 Nigeriaworld Feature Article - Obama and McCain: On Nigeria's Niger Delta
The Niger Delta: Nothing places Nigeria in the news lately more than the Niger Delta. Indeed, the Niger Delta is synonymous with the instability that Nigeria contributes to global oil supply and, by extension, the current global energy crisis. The Niger Delta now attracts some worrisome lexicon in the global report of news about Nigeria.
